2:1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whoever thou art, that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest, doest the same things. 2:2 But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth, against them who commit such things. 2:3 And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them who do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God? 2:4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness, and forbearance, and long-suffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? 2:5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart, treasurest up to thyself wrath against the day of wrath, and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; 2:6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds: 2:7 To them who by patient continuance in well-doing, seek for glory, and honor, and immortality; eternal life: 2:8 But to them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness; indignation and wrath: 2:9 Tribulation and anguish upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; 2:10 But glory, honor, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile; 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God. 2:12 For as many as have sinned without law, shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law, shall be judged by the law, 2:13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. 2:14 For when the Gentiles, who have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these having not the law, are a law to themselves. 2:15 Who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing testimony, and [their] thoughts the mean while accusing, or else excusing one another) 2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel. 2:17 Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God, 2:18 And knowest [his] will, and approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law, 2:19 And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them who are in darkness, 2:20 An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, who hast the form of knowledge, and of the truth in the law: 2:21 Thou therefore who teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? 2:22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege? 2:23 Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonorest thou God? 2:24 For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles, through you, as it is written. 2:25 For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keepest the law; but if thou art a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision. 2:26 Therefore, if the uncircumcision keepeth the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision? 2:27 And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfilleth the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law? 2:28 For he is not a Jew, who is one outwardly; neither [is that] circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: 2:29 But he [is] a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision [is that] of the heart, in the spirit, [and] not in the letter; whose praise [is] not from men, but from God.
